Welcome to my travel in France blog: France Travel Tips, which was created to help travellers plan their next trip to France with unique experiences that are not always written about in travel guides. I love France and whether this is your first time or it’s a repeat visit, I hope my ideas can inspire you and help you save time and money.

Why I Created This Website

My background is in the field of education where I loved helping others. I’ve travelled to France 36 times and my friends and family would often ask me to help them plan their trips. I have enjoyed doing this simply to help them enjoy France as much as I do. 

I decided to create this website because there are so many unique experiences I think others would like to know about. Every time I go to France I seek out something that the tour books have overlooked.

This is the focus of my website because I believe the best memories of trips are not from one’s purchases, but from their experiences.
